The SRC, a national facility funded by the National Science Foundation, uses an electron storage ring to provide synchrotron light as a tool for doing scientific research. Participants in the program will work directly with researchers on a hands-on project chosen from a variety of science fields. Previous projects investigated ultrananocrystalline diamond, coherent electron radiation, exotic low dimensional materials, prion diseases, atomic photo-ionization, and environmental problems such as the effects of global warming on algae. Mentors, graduate students, SRC staff, and other scientists will serve as a resource to students as they complete their research projects.
